Iberia Parish Extension
In 1868, Iberia Parish was established, and New Iberia became the seat of parish government. Cities, towns and communities within the parish include Avery Island, Jefferson Island, Jeanerette, Loreauville, Delcambre and New Iberia. Iberia Parish is home to many attractions including Avery Island, the Tabasco factory, Jungle Gardens and Shadows-on-the Teche. Iberia Parish remains a blend of the "joie de vivre" and a commitment to preserve the past and improve the future.  

Agriculture and Natural Resources
Agriculture is an $97 million dollar industry in Iberia Parish and as a coastal parish, residents are concerned with protecting the coastline and maintaining the fisheries industry. Delcambre Direct, which is part of the Market Maker program, allows local fishermen the opportunity to sell their products directly to the public via the Internet. With the recent oil spill, this program has been very successful and hopes are that other commodities such as local fruits, vegetables, eggs and beef follow suit.
